Just when you think a market must be dead, you learn something new. For example, did you know that FAX is a $500 million annual market, and that the growth segment in that market is PC based transmission – growing at 16% annually. I certainly didn’t.
One of the stalwarts of the PC based faxing world is PamFax. On Monday they announced PamFax 2.0, which brings a workflow based approach to PC faxing, as well as a the ability to send and receive fax at your PC from 27 different countries. Installable as a Skype plug-in, a Facebook application, a SalesForce widget, or a Windows Vista sidebar gadget, PamFax is dragging fax into the 21st century.
PamFax pricing is cheap (prepaid) or cheaper (subscription), depending on whether you want to commit to a service term or just send the odd fax. The first page is free, and each additional page is cheap – much cheaper than say a hotel’s business center.
Jim Courtney has written an extensive review, as well as a little bit of the history of PC based FAX for those inclined to indulge in a trip down memory lane. Anyone remember WinFAX? Jim does too, plus he remembers a few others that I didn’t even know about.
So if you need to FAX on the go check out PamFax.
